After the graffiti removal.
The Rock Garden has lots of lines just a few miles off the main road. If you know where the Texas Block is, continue on and Rock Garden parking is on the left hand side. I have even seen some Unaweep projects in Rock and Ice magazine that are in the Rock Garden area.
It has a quick approach, a good variety of boulders, and lots of potential for me. In the Colorado Bouldering guidebook, there are 5-6 pages on the Rock Garden.
This is just a bit past the Texas Block area on the left hand side (assuming you're coming from Grand Junction). There's a dirt lot on the left.
Per Kevin Hadfield
: this is just after mile marker 150 on CO Hwy 141 on the south side of the road.

This area is littered with glass, some routes have shards that litter the landing. So sad, why do people abuse special places like this?

You're right about the area. The WCCC (climbing coalition) cleaned it up really well a couple of years ago, but it's also a party site for teenagers and vagabonds at times. Thanks for letting us know!
